Situated on a rise in an undulating landscape. This is a circular grass-covered area (diam. 63.5m NE-SW; 60.2m NW-SE) defined by the remains of an earthen bank (at E: Wth of base 8m; int. H 0.85m; ext. H 3.3m) with some bushes NE-SE and S-SW but reduced to a scarp generally or quarried SW-NW. There is an outer fosse (at E: Wth of top 6.4m; Wth of base 4.2m; ext. D 1m) best preserved NW-E-SE. There is a small section of an outer bank (Wth of base 5m; int. H 1.8m; ext. H 0.65m), largely incorporated into a road bank, NW-N. The original entrance is not identified but it may have been at S. The above description is derived from the published 'Archaeological Inventory of County Meath' (Dublin: Stationery Office, 1987). In certain instances the entries have been revised and updated in the light of recent research. Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of revision: 5 September 2018
